Movie Quotes to Help You Plan Your Outdoor Party

Throwing a backyard movie party doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive, but it does require some planning ahead to make sure your friends and family enjoy themselves. Here, you’ll find some movie quotes that serve as tips for putting together your next outdoor party.

“I don’t own emotion. I rent.”Rent, 1996
Unless you’re a tech buff with every piece of equipment ready to be set up and started, do yourself a favor and rent an outdoor projector. Partner with a home theater company and you’ll have everything you need in both audio and visual outdoor entertainment. For the best parties, you can rent surround-sound systems, and have the technicians customize the perfect outdoor home theater system to optimize your visual and acoustic experience affordably.

“My friend, I have been to many, many stake-ings, and it all comes down to location, location, location!” Dracula: Dead and Loving It, 1995
Pick the right spot to set up the seating, outdoor projector rental and other elements of the event. Whether it’s the backyard lawn, the patio or set up among several houses, you’ll want to make sure everyone’s comfortable and can see and hear. Of course, not everyone has a backyard, so try to get as creative as possible with your space.

“Lilly-flowers nodded their half-opened heads in the grass.” – The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, 2001
While a lush, wild landscape is easy on the eyes, it’s not something you want to be sitting in during your movie party. Be sure to mow the lawn a day or two prior to the event for easy setup and comfortable surroundings. Also clear away any yard debris (including animal droppings), sticks or low-hanging branches that could cause damage to the outdoor projector rental equipment.

“He knew the risks, he didn’t have to be there. It rains… you get wet.” – Heat, 1995
Don’t let your automated sprinklers get your guests wet. Turn them well beforehand to prevent any possible equipment damage to electrical items, especially if you rent an outdoor projector, which you have to return.

“I’m an insect who dreamt he was a man and loved it. But now the dream is over… and the insect is awake.” The Fly, 1986
Nobody likes bugs buzzing around in any circumstances. Make sure you repel mosquitoes and flying insects. Fog your yard with insect repellent a couple hours prior to your event and have citronella candles, torches and insect repellent handy to help keep mosquitoes and flying insects away.

“He flips the projectors, the movie keeps right on going, and nobody in the audience has any idea.” – Fight Club, 1999
This might seem obvious, but select a movie for your outdoor party that will appeal to a wide range of tastes and ages. Consider the guests you’ll be inviting and choose accordingly. It could be a comedy, a family-friendly flick, a rom-com or a classic. The options are virtually endless.

If you’re looking to rent an outdoor projector or any other equipment for your backyard movie party, do you research. Choose a company that has a great reputation, a movie that has great reviews, and your party will be a hit!
